The structure of surgical training in Otolaryngology in the United Kingdom has changed dramatically due to the introduction of the European Working Time Directive (EWTD), which has caused training curriculums to change from being time-based to competency-based. Due to this reduction in surgical exposure, simulation is a method of training which is starting to be utilised to maximise training opportunities. This article is an overview describing what simulation is, how it is being used within Otolaryngology and what we can expect in the future.
